Celebrated Ghanaian MC of international repute, Kwesi Kyei Darkwa (KKD) has made an appearance in a new Ghana movie titled 'Redemption'.
Little is known about KKD's acting experience but sources say he played his role very well alongside other actors as David Dontoh and Mr. Beautiful.
The movie has been described as Ghana's first ever 3D well-written and choreographed action movie. It is from the stables of 8th Wonder and is said to have captivating scenes and very good stunt display.
There are plans to release it onto Ghana's movie market.
'Redemption' tells the story of a captured murderer who is put before the royal body to be executed by the King of Bubuashie's favorite warrior and executioner. The convict is given a chance to fight for his life and freedom. This chance assures the convict 'Redemption'.
Writer and producer Kofi Adjei Maafo, who is also the CEO of 8th Wonder, said the idea of 'Redemption' was to prove a point that stunts could be professionally produced in Ghana.
“I have watched a couple of good movies where producers try to do some stunt works and even though it is not properly done, it can be passed as a try, hence those movies inspired my team and I to shoot this movie.”
“It is Ghana's first ever short film and doubles as Ghana's first ever action movie well made. By saying that, let me give big thanks to Pascal Aka for directing this movie and to all the guys who made sure the movie saw day light.
Simply put, you need to watch 'Redemption' to redeem the image of stunt works in our local movies,” he added.
